Propertymart’s management had failed to take any remedial action despite persistent calls by long suffering residents who have been at the mercy of the flood. The road leading to the estate had failed leaving residents stuck inside or outside until emergency action was taken to staunch the flood with sand bags purchased by the communal effort of residents.
